Healing Mental Illness Podcast: Lessons Learned in the Trenches

Joshua Alexander: Schizoaffective Disorder Survivor, Yogi, Holistic Health Enthusiast

Healing from Mental Illness is possible!!! I know, because I did it. I have fully healed from schizoaffective disorder after a ten-year long battle, and have been medication-free and living a normal life since June of 2013. If you or a loved one is struggling with schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, anxiety, or any other mental illness, there is hope!!! I am producing this podcast to accompany my new book, Healing Schizoaffective, to share the insights and wisdom that I gained from my experience, to help others who are suffering. Check out my website, healingschizoaffective.com, for more information! (Intro/Outro music: iStock.com/AudioGate)
